Stephanie at the Yahoo Event in Times Square

(30/100 Strangers) This is Stephanie. She designed the Yahoo Flickr event in Times Square. Although I found her in New York, she's only been here 3 times. Instead, she grew up in Wyoming, until attending school in So Cal for studies in Design. From there, she moved to Yahoo. She was my first stranger at the Yahoo event, and was super willing to participate. Almost right away, I was drawn to her style and welcoming demenour, and she was a blast to talk to. -- On a technical standpoint, I was hesitant to do the Strangers project at an event like this, although it couldn't have been easier, as I got full cooperation from people. I also feel almost as if I'm starting over, havning hardly worked on the 100 Strangers since last fall. As for lighting, you can see things were not ideal. I tried to position her perpendicular to a light board, which caused blown out highlights in some cases, and poor lighting around the eyes in the other. This is the best from the photos I managed, which is a shame, as Stephanie was a beautiful subject with a great smile, and a fantastic style. Thanks so much for participating Steohanie! Your event was beautiful, and we're happy to have a Wyoming representative in New York!
